Homemade Croutons

These crunchy, buttery sourdough croutons are tossed in Olive Oil and sprinkled with freshly Grated Parmesan cheese. They're so easy to make at home and can be ready in just 15 minutes!

Ingredients

  • 1 loaf sourdough bread, 3 days old
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 4 Tablespoons Parmesan cheese, finely grated
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • Freshly cracked pepper, to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Cut the sour dough bread into bite-sized cubes.
  • Place the cubes on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, garlic powder salt, and pepper.
  • Use a large spoon to toss the cubes and evenly coat them in the oil and toppings.
  • Spread the cubes around, leaving space around each one so that the edges can crisp up. Use 2 baking sheets if needed.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes, until golden brown and crisp. (Mine were done after 10 minutes exactly.)
  • Leave them on the baking sheet to cool. Once fully cooled, store them in an airtight container for 2-3 days. 

Notes

  • French Bread and Ciabatta Bread are also perfect for making croutons. 
  • To extend the shelf life of homemade croutons, omit the Parmesan cheese and store for up to two weeks.
